For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? … Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ. (Romans 10:12-14, 17).
In blog post number 26 I spoke about the Understanding Dementia MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) being run by the University of Tasmania. Over 20,000 have people enrolled in the July 2018 MOOC!
I have just come across an ABC Radio interview which talks about the MOOC. It reminded me of the words of St. Paul in his letter to the Romans. He gives us a wonderful promise that “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved”, and then asks a very important question: “How can they hear without someone preaching to them?”
The MOOC is truly wonderful – I promise that! But people won’t know about it unless people like me, and you, tell others (preach) about it. That’s one reason I began this blog. It’s also the reason why I am doing the Bachelor of Dementia Care.
So, let me share this ABC Radio interview with you. It will help to explain what the MOOC all about. It goes for about eight and a half minutes, and will hopefully whet your appetite!
St. Paul boldly states that the Lord richly blesses all who call on him. I hope that you will be richly blessed as you listen to this interview, and when you eventually do the MOOC.
